While in Las Vegas for the WSOP 2012, I decided to try out Koi inside Planet Hollywood. This place actually looks like a restaurant that belongs in Las Vegas, starting from the entrance. If you’re looking for a quaint little mom and pop place, this is not the place for you. Come here to feel like you’re in Vegas baby.
To start, I tried the sunomono which was good but not as vinegary as I like it. Next, came the Spicy Seared Albacore but the ponzu sauce was once again way too sweet for my taste. Now with 2 items in a row that was not exactly to my liking, this got me a little worried.
Next, I had to try some sushi so I ordered Torro nigiri and Crab roll and my friend had the Eel and Avocado roll. All the sushi was prepared properly, was fresh and tasty.
There were several things I wanted to try for desert but I decided to play safe and got the Molten chocolate cake. I guess it’s hard to screw this up but it was presented very well and was the perfect ending to my meal.
The service and food were both rated good here. I would come back and try some other items next time I’m there. However, don’t come here if you’re on a tight budget. It’s Vegas and it’s expensive.
